    Uniform Tunic, 7th Regiment, New York National Guard, triple breasted, swallow-tailed in cadet-grey wool with gold bullion lace at the collar, sleeves, and tail. The tunic has twenty-five large buttons (one loose) and seventeen small buttons. It is missing seven large buttons and one small button. The tunic is fully lined (the lining of the sleeves needs to be reattached at the shoulder. The original maker's label reads, "S. Morrison & Son/643 Park Ave./250 E. 67th St., N.Y./ 7th Reg. Tailor". Light mothing, else, near very good.

    This is the pre-Civil War pattern uniform of the 7th Regiment. It was reinstated in October 1867 when individual companies voted to return to the pre-war full dress uniform. Regimental orders described the uniform as the "Gray dress coat as worn in 1860." By the spring of 1868, the Regiment was again wearing the tailed, braided, and laced coats.

    The traditional uniform of the 7th was a symbol of stability in New York City. The regiment continued to wear it as regimental full dress until the Second World War.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
